    Did you authorize your new computer with your iTunes account? You need to do that to play previously purchased downloads, after if you've copied/migrated them to your new computer (and you can have up to 5 computers authorized at a time). Go to iTunes > Store menu > Authorize Computer.

    Movies are stored in yourhomefolder/Music/iTunes/iTunes Library/Movies. TV Shows are stored in yourhomefolder/Music/iTunes/iTunes Library/TV Shows.

    Hope this helps...
